    • Moulding (Arch) A plane, or curved, narrow surface, either sunk or projecting, used for decoration by means of the lights and shades upon its surface. Moldings vary greatly in pattern, and are generally used in groups, the different members of each group projecting or retreating, one beyond another. See Cable n., 3, and Crenelated molding, under Crenelate v. t.

For the physics prototype, small SiPMs and injection-moulded scintillator tiles with embedded wavelength-shifting fibre have been developed.

This has been successfully demonstrated for different machined tile designs [55, 56], and also shows promise for mass production with injection moulding.

Moreover, the metallicities of globular clusters in the dwarf satellite companions of the Galaxy (Da Costa & Armandroff 1995) and M31 (Da Costa & Mould 1988) are typically (but, as demonstrated by Terzan 7, not exclusively) very metal-poor, like NGC6287.

For galaxies in the Virgo cluster, Coma I cloud, and Leo I group, which we refer to as ‘cluster’ galaxies, we adopted common mean distances based on the mean heliocentric velocity of each group (Mould et al. 1993).

This is a critical issue, for instance there were two early tentatives to measure the gravitational lensing by large scale structures, which failed because the image quality was very low and the PSF correction not accurate (Valdes et al. 1983, Mould et al. 1994).
